I am a bit of a noob when it comes to quad core processors.. I am interested in making a new computer with either a 6700 or x6800 conroe processor.. I will do a lot gaming on my computer, internet browsing, programming /web development, and watching movies/tv.
What will a quad core (kentsfield) do better then say an x6800 extreme conroe? Will gaming be better with a quadcore or worse?? Please explain how this works. I have searched the forums some but never really get an exact answer.
I have to agree w/ K8MAN.
For your situation, DC is plenty for you. Gaming won't benefit that much and neither will any of those other things you mentioned.
Now if you were doing video encoding or photoshop or something, that would be a greater consideration, IMO.
